About Nicholas and Jill

We are both retired farmers living in the beautiful countryside of the Scottish Borders. We both enjoy outdoor activities and are keen gardeners. Both our children are now pursuing their own careers but we still have our labrador.

Nicholas and Jill purchased this villa in 2010

Why Nicholas and Jill chose Playa Blanca

We have been coming to Lanzarote for many years and found that Playa Blanca had the most sunshine on the island. It is a very friendly place and suitable for all ages. It has lots of restaurants and shops to suit all tastes and pockets and easy access to other activities. The new marina is well worth a visit with its twice weekly market.

What makes this villa unique

This villa is our holiday home where we can have our children and grandchildren to stay. It has a lovely artistic shaped pool with an extensive terrace and a garden with many Canarian shrubs and trees. It is private and you could be forgiven if you thought you were on your own. It is an ideal place to enjoy your sundowner while watching the sun disappear behind Montana Roja. It is within walking distance of a beach,restaurants and shops.

Fabulous villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

A gorgeous villa in a great location. We have been in many villas over the lsst 10 years but this ones outside space gardens hottub and fabulous pool was the best. Inside the villa is equally as comfortable with everything you need for a good holiday.

Overall excellent.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. One of the main reasons we bought Vista Mar for our holiday home was because it had an extensive terrace and garden with views over the sea to Fuentaventura and being able to enjoy a sundowner on the terrace while the sun sets behind the red mountain! The pool was another factor being an unusual shape. Jill and Nicholas

Peaceful and large space

  • 5 of 5

Lovely big villa with enough facilities to keep us all happy and entertained - pool area is larger than other villas I have seen and the hot tub is brilliant - the area around is quiet and clean and it’s not far to walk to the Flamingo beach, which is great. Thanks for a lovely holiday

Fantastic family villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a smashing stay at Villa Vista Mar. Having three children ranging from 21months to 11 years old it is a challenge to make everyone happy, the pool certainly did the trick. It's huge!! The villa is very well equipt, better than other villas we have stayed in. It's clean and maintained very well too. A massive thank you to the owners who took the time to answer my questions before I booked, it was a great help. The location is only a short walk from a lovely safe beach with a few shops and bars etc. We all loved our stay and if we return to Playa Blanca we would love to stay again.

Stunning Villa with sea views

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned home after a lovely 2 week holiday at this villa. The location was great, right near the water park, a short walk to the beach and just a little further to the shops and restaurants. We had dinner by the sea most evenings. The villa itself is well equipped, we wanted for nothing. The pool is amazing, really big, and we also made good use of the hot tub. The maintenance staff were really nice and the pool was cleaned regularly. Beds changed and the villa cleaned once a week too. Thank you for the welcome pack and a great holiday Nicholas and Jill. We hope to return in the next few years.

Vista Mar holiday - February - March 2017

  • 5 of 5

We all had a really fabulous holiday at Vista Mar villa, which is owned by Nicholas and Jill Sperling. We were celebrating a special birthday and with my family of five adults and three children the villa provided excellent accommodation and facilities for us all.

The villa was very comfortable and had everything we needed, as we all like to cook it was great to have such a wide range of pots and pans too. We had a couple of BBQs with the family and everyone enjoyed themselves with the pool and hot tub being our favourites.

The local facilities provided lots of activities for all of us. The children had fun on Flamingo Beach, which is only a short walk from the villa and the Water Park was great fun too. We all enjoyed eating out at the local restaurants and the children were made to feel welcome.

Thank you Nicholas and Jill for allowing our family to have a memorable holiday in your villa and we are already planning for a return trip in the future.

Lovely spacious villa with sea and mountain views.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 8 nights at the begining of April. The weather was hot and we used the pool and hot tub every day. The pool is 12m and long enough to do lengths in. The villa is spacious, clean and very well equipped. It is in a quiet position within about 10 minutes walk of Flamingo Bay and 20 minutes to the centre and harbour. The marina is a bit further but it is a lovely walk for the Wednesday or Saturday market. Walking away in the other direction finds some lovely restaurants (the very chilled Manea Bar for lunch and Sebastyns Greek for dinner). Walk further on to the lighthouse. The villa is an easy drive from the airport and we'd recommend picking up a car at the airport and keeping it for the duration as there are loads of places to visit on the Island. Overall, we had a fantastic holiday and would definitely look to hire this villa again in the future. Highly recommended.

Location

Coast/Beach:

A short ten minute walk takes one to the golden sandy beach of Playa Flamingo which is very sheltered and safe for children. Natura beach is also nearby in the other direction. Further afield (15 minutes by car) are the Papagayo beaches which are composed of several small bays with crystal clear waters. These can be reached by car or by taking a boat trip from the harbour.

Travel:

Arrecife airport is about 40 minutes away by car. There are also taxis. Transport from and to the airport can be made by mini bus if arranged in advance.

Car hire is recommended but not essential but ideal to visit the many sights on this island.

Further Details:

Supermarkets, restaurants, bars and banking facilities are within 10 minutes walking distance. There are some excellent restaurants to the right of the villa passed the Natura Palace hotel.

The main shopping area is about 25 minutes walk from the villa. There is an open air market on Wednesday and Saturday at the Rubicon marina and a large market at Teguise on Sunday mornings.

A new water park, which opened summer 2012 is within walking distance. Diving, cycling, deep sea fishing, sailing, tennis are some of the sports to be enjoyed. Bicycles can be hired locally.

There is also a local bus number 30 which goes around Playa Blanca and which stops opposite the Rio Playa Blanca.

Further afield there are two golf course, horse riding, quad biking and windsurfing.
